This grinder was very expensive and I expected a lot. Unfortunately all it does is grind coffee. Well you might think isn't that all it's supposed to do? Yes, however after grinding there is a tremendous amount of ground coffee that adheres to the grinder and attaches to the container the coffee falls into. To minimize this problem my husband and I put individual coffee filters under the grinding apparatus. However the result is the dame: too much ground coffee sticks to the sides of the filters we use. It's too late to return this but after this experience I'd never buy this brand of coffee grinder again.
